Apocalypse Now

The only people on the PBR Streetgang to survive are Willard (Martin Sheen) and Lance (Sam Bottoms). Lance practically becomes a member of all Kurtz's people and takes part in the animal sacrifice. While Willard slowly contemplates killing Kurtz (Marlon Brando). He eventually carries out his orders and eliminates Kurtz by chopping him to pieces. Willard reads a page from Kurtz's journal, where Kurtz had written 'DROP THE BOMB, EXTERMINATE THEM ALL'. Willard walks out, where all of Kurtz's people stand their motionless watching him. He walks through them, grabs Lance and heads back to the boat. They sail off. (Redux Version) The Destruction of the Kurtz Compound by airstrike is added.
